of the many issues expected to come up this morning when health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testifies at a house committee hearing. nancy cordes is on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> good morning. she was asked to testify last week but she said she did not have time. the questions have only piled up since then. republican lawmakers want to know why she and other officials appeared to be so surprised with problems of the website when they had gotten warnings about it in advance. according to her prepared testimony, the secretary of health and human services will cast blame for obama care's bumpy rollout on the subset of contractors that we depend on. marilyn tavenner who oversees the agency that was contracted said it appears to be ready to go. >> was there any sense at all that there was going to be problems with the website? >> there are always going to be issues with the website, what i would call customary glitches, but, no, not this. >> they told lawmakers last week they informed them two weeks before that the volume had crashed the website and three weeks before t

sebelius, the secretary of health and human services, she's marilyn tavennar's boss. she testifies tomorrow. >> that will be a good one. there are now several published reports that millions of americans who currently have health insurance have been told they cannot renew their current plan. now this contradicts what the obama administration has previously said. david shuster is here to do that for us. >> tony, president obama has repeatedly said that for those who like their healthcare insurance they'll be able to keep it, but the reality for many that is not true. insurance companies have had to make adjustments to comply with the healthcare law. and state after state they're being forced to change their plans. insurance companies must meet basic minimum standards called essential health benefits. there are ten of these benefits that must be covered, doctor visits, emergency care, hospitalization, maternity and newborn care. many are receiving cancellation letters if their policies lack some of these standard. the people most affected by the cancellation are those who buy insurance by the
of medicare, and while she is not as well known as the health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius, officials had this woman -- said she had a bigger role in sitting up the side. it had a lot of technical difficulties but medicare chief promised lawmakers the system is getting better. >> i want to assure you that healthcare.gov can and will be fixed and we're working around the clock to deliver the shopping experience that you deserve. we are seeing improvements each week and by the end of november the experience on the site will be smooth for the vast majority of users. >> some house republicans pressed how she can guarantee the government will fix the problems next month and asked whether the rush to repair the site will leave even more problems. house speaker john boehner told reporters it's proof that the republicans were right all lining. >> obamacare is like a wet blanket over our economy. the american people are looking for more jobs, better wages, but with all the up certainty around the law, employers are having a very difficult time making decisions. it's time to delay th
for fixing these problems. >> secretary of health kathleen sebelius said the buck starts with her and promises to fix the federal health care website in a month you. >> thousands of babies die in this country because their mothers do not have access to adequate health care. some suggest obamacare may reverse that trend. >> the red sox are word champions! >> for
plans they liked and picked for and what we saw from sebelius, the head of the department of health and human services issuing regulations is we know better. how dare you ask me these questions, i don't work for you. >> barack obama opinion poll ratings collapse further and the republicans get into power. ted cruz may well be the guy that is the nominee, we don't know but he might be. if he is, his father has come out with incredibly antiinflammatory comments which i want to discuss with you after this break. i'm on expert on softball. and tea parties. i'll have more awkward conversations than i'm equipped for, because i'm raising two girls on my own. i'll worry about the economy more than a few times before they're grown. but it's for them, so i've found a way. who matters most to you says the most about you. at massmutual we're owned by our policyowners, and they matter most to us. ready to plan for your future? we'll help you get there. at any minute... ...you could be a victim of fraud. most people don't even know it. fraud could mean lower credit scores... ...and higher interes
should do at this point? >> the democrats? i think that kathleen sebelius and president obama should send the house republican has giant gift basket with a big shiny red bow on top for their performance this week. it's pretty clear that republicans seem to have a penchant for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory and i would say this week was no exception. it's clear that there are some problems with the rollout of the health care law, particularly obviously with healthcare.gov. but the one thing americans were not inclined to do was shut down the government over the health care law, and right now they might have been inclined to support hearings to find out what were the actual problems. but they're not willing to do was see it become part of a witch hunt or monkey court. that's why we're seeing support for the law go up and support for republicans drop to a low. >> having said that, what do you think the democrats should do next? >> i think they should try to get exactly what they were doing, which they should try to get to the bottom of the problems with healthcare.gov. and they sh
kathleen sebelius, about the embattled healthcare rollout. we're live, wjz eyewitness news. >> derek, thank you. you can get unbiased information about health plan options and enrollment assistance, by calling healthcare access call center. >>> in montgomery county police are investigating two bank robberies in rockville. police say both robberies occurred in morning but they're not believed to be related. the first took place at a sun trust bank, where a man with a handgun demanded money. the second happened at a wells fargo branch. police say two suspects entered the bank. one fired shots. the two men left the bank empty handed. no one was injured. >>> an honor student at morgan state university files a complaint after he says he was kept out of a national fraternity because he's gay. he said he has text messages between current members to prove his allegations. wjz is live at morgan state in northeast baltimore. rochelle ritchie is there and has more on the latest. >> reporter: the student said he felt the complaint with morgan state university, after he received evidence of racial and g
of different places. is kathleen sebelius ultimately in charge? >> not really. she doesn't seem to. now it's jeffrey zions who is sort of the hedman at the white house to get the thing running again. sebelius doesn't have all of the answers on the technical side. i don't know the extent to which she knows what's going wrong on the technical side. you're right, there was no one contractor in charge of making sure this was fully operational by day one. >> you can't penalize someone if they can't -- >> they can't buy it, right. >> they have to delay this. >> you have senate democrats who are running for re-election, you know, mary landru, mark prior, folks who are in stuff red states saying let's delay this. the white house is terrified of delay. they think it undermines the entire thing. it will start falling apart if they delay. you're absolutely right. how do you require somebody to buy something -- you wouldn't require somebody to buy a book on amazon if they -- >> is this a good headline or bad headline. >> obama unaware. >> it's a terrible headline. every time there's a problem in the a
angela merkel and other world leaders for nearly five years. followed by a few claims of hhs sebelius obama didn't know about problems of the health care website before the launch. the white house frequently has given a variation on this theme. the question, what did obama know and when did he know it? answer not much and about a minute ago. i mean not much and about a minute ago. and so now we're hearing that from other people that he did know for five years that angela merkel and allies have been -- i mean this is bad. >> the length of time that the program has been under operation or at least the lent of time it has been published with various world leaders. if he did not know, if you choose to believe the president of the united states and i believe the president of the united states, i want to believe the president of the united states. >> some reports suggest he signed off on it. >> if he did not know why didn't he know? the larger question is do we have an out of control national security agency? do we have a secret government in the shadows of government that the president of
administration? recall last week dr. sanjay gupta asked health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius when the president knew about the debacle with the federal obama care website. >> do you know when he first knew that there was a problem? >> well, i think it became clear fairly early on. the first couple of days -- >> so not before that, though? not before october 1st? >> there is, one could argue, quite a difference between plausible deniability and being an absentee landlord. now, over the weekend, a german newspaper reported that the nsa may have been tapping angela merkel's phone for more than a decade, even before she became german chancellor. it may have been going on throughout president obama's whole first term without him knowing about it or finding out about it, but it actually would have started during the bush/cheney administration. earlier today i sat down with former vice president dick cheney and asked him about that. >> vice president cheney, thanks so much for joining us. the book, very fascinating. i want to get to it in a second. first, i have to ask you about som
for somebody like that always is you have got the right people? kathleen sebelius and her department and agencies have let him down on the obama carrollout and so forth which would seem to be a real problem for him. also the questions about what he knew and when about things like benghazi. we still don't know what he did that night, precisely what he did that night. >> we still don't know what the meeting is the day before and that's the most recent news. they had a meeting in the white house and he attended it the day before this meeting came up. we don't know anything about the meeting and the white house won't tell us. >> no, the white house is not forth coming about information on this. it's difficult to assess it it's tempting to think if the president was doing something truly glorious about this they would tell us about it and he must not have been because they won't. you can't know. >> in historical he evaluations of presidents, its performance that counts. i'm trying not the to be unfair. right now i see barack obama in major trouble on the history front. forget about the ob
public and this week, even secretary sebelius coming before the committee acknowledged this was dece deceit. >> in a speech on wednesday in boston, the president said all those terminations were, quote, a central premise of the affordable care act from the very beginning. sir, isn't that an admission that the president himself knew from the beginning that what he was promising was simply untrue? >> i think that's true. there are two explanations. the president rather knew and was intentionally deceitful or he was ig narnt of the fact and neither explanation is good. >> i would count three possibilities here. either the president, you know, intentionally made claims he knew to be false or he made claims recklessly. he just didn't care about the truth of it or he was, as you mentioned, misinformed. we may never know because he likely won't say, but in that boston speech, he blamed the insurance companies for canceling millions of health plans. of course, he ignored the fact that the carriers were forced to do that under the requirements of his new law. i mean, congressman, isn't that l
the way this was developed, kathleen sebelius couldn't house the people working on the website in her office because of various fears regarding partisan political environment, funding, a host of issues. are you more confident the system they have in place now, the folks they are bringing in, the outside consultants are going to have an easier, less thorny time unraveling problems with this website they would have had six months ago? it seems the climate around the aca was no less heated than it was preelection. >> there's no question they obviously have a better management in place, property back jeffrey zients, former director, quite capable, president is involved, getting nightly briefings on it. there's no question they have a more concerted focus and better management structure for getting this done. whether they will actually fix the website by the end of november remains to be seen because it is such a formidable task. that still remain to be seen. >> it is an exhaustive and thorough piece. thank you so much for report, "washington post." that you for your time. >> thank you. >>
what we are all going to be looking for this week is kathleen sebelius' testimony before the energy and commerce committee. she is secretary of health and human services. she will be testifying relating to the rollout of the enrollment web site which has been having a lot of problems in terms of its functioning and it terms of getting people enrolled in the insurance exchanges as part of the individual mandate that we have heard so much about. it is likely to be a partisan panel. republicans who don't like the president's health law are absolutely using this as fodder for their own arguments against the law and as an example of how the implementation has gone badly as they predicted. democrats are the ones to watch because they support the health care law and don't want it dismantled or repealed and are in a tough spot because they have to acknowledge that the web site is not working and needs to be fixed and people should be held accountable so they probably want to be walking that fine line between asking the tough important questions but not throwing the administration under the
